The 2016 Sonoma County Merlot is deep garnet in color with a ruby edge. The nose is a compelling mixture of sour cherry, blackberry, and red plum with cocoa, clove, and earthy aromas of cedar, bay laurel, and smoky bacon framing the bright fruit. On the palate, bright red fruit, red plum, black cherry, and wild blueberry are framed by light toast and sweet vanilla notes, with a hint of fresh sweet herbs. Spice lends depth and weight. This medium- to full-bodied wine finishes with toasty oak notes.
Enjoy pairing this Merlot with garlic spot prawn and mushroom pizza, cedar-smoked squab with Merlot grape compote, or roasted salmon with wild risotto cake.
